Step inside the world of Pottermore at PlayStation Home

As we previously announced on the Insider, we’ve been working with Sony to translate a selection of beautifully illustrated Moments from Pottermore.com into PlayStation Home, PlayStation® 3’s free virtual 3D gaming platform.


We’re very excited to announce that Pottermore at PlayStation Home is now available, so you can step inside Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express as your own customisable avatar.

  

You will also be able to enjoy four exclusive mini-games. Aboard the Hogwarts Express, approach the shady looking character at the end of the train carriage to take part in an illicit Wizard's Duel.

 

Enter into one of the compartments and challenge your friends to a Pottermore quiz to test your knowledge.

  

As well as this, you can collect and share Pottermore Trading Cards throughout Pottermore at PlayStation Home, and round up enchanted books in the Book Herding mini-game.

 

The Sony team behind Pottermore at PlayStation Home has put together some top tips that will help you enjoy this experience fully. You can find these tips here.

This experience will evolve over time to include more locations, new purchasable items and additional mini-games. As usual, you’ll be the first to know about any updates here on the Insider. We have a separate team working on these new Pottermore innovations so, for those who don’t have a PlayStation account, there is no need to worry as we still have a dedicated team hard at work on new Moments and instalments for Pottermore.com

We hope that you enjoy the Pottermore at PlayStation Home experience. Don’t forget to share your impressions with us on Facebook or Twitter, and in your Common Room and the Great Hall on Pottermore.com.
